Case of Nagara
長良の場合

Nagara is a town in the northern part of the city of Gifu. While the opening of Prefectural Road 77 in 2003 improved car access to Nagoya and increased convenience, the traditional landscape is changing due to the increasing number of suburban chain stores and the population decline. In such a typical suburb, there is no reliable context that would last as long as the lifespan of a new building. The static form of symmetry can serve as a reference line that highlights changes against the surrounding environment by actively generates friction between the two.

岐阜市内の北部の町。2003年に県道77号線が開通して名古屋までの自動車交通が便利になったが、郊外型チェーン店が増え、人口もゆるやかに減少し、昔ながらの風景が変わりつつある。このような典型的な郊外では、新しい建物のライフスパンに見合うような信頼のおけるコンテクストは存在しない。シンメトリーという静的な形式は、ゆるやかな変化の過程にある周辺環境との軋轢を積極的に生みつつ、変化を相対化させてみせる。
